Flamboyantly gay Austrian television reporter Bruno (Sacha Baron Cohen) stirs up trouble with unsuspecting guests and large crowds through brutally frank interviews and painfully hilarious public displays of homosexuality.
I went and saw this in theaters when it came out. There were a whole four of us in the theater and three of us were in the same party (the other was some weird old guy). From beginning to end I was almost on the floor from laughing so hard. I left that theater with my sides literally hurting. If you watch this movie and you don't think it's hysterical then you are obviously homophobic! Definitely a movie to watch if you want to see something that will make your gut bust from laughing so hard. Keep the kids away from this one though. 8.5/10
It was a hilarious film, shocking and jaw dropping. It was defiently not for the feint hearted. Some parts may make you want to vommit and others just burst out laughing. Sacha Baron Cohen was unbelievably good. The rudest and most discutingly hilarious film i have seen in years!
In my personal opinion i thought the movie was offensive and vulgar, and this is coming from a 17 year old kid who wrestles. The movie wasn't funny and i did not laugh. i watched it home alone and felt awkward and embarrassed. Borat was a good movie, but this new one is terrible. DO NOT let your kids see it.
When watching the movie trailer for Bruno it was a movie that looked light hearted and comical. In my opinion the trailer was misleading. The amount of disgusting and inapporiate material in the movie completely overtook the comedy. The numerous sex scences and nudity caused most to feel uncomfortable, and in my theatre most walked out. Going into the movie my opinion was the I was going to be laughing during the entire movie, little did I know that it was almost like pornography. The trailer gave the only funny parts in the movie. This movie was definitely a let down in my opinion.
Just like borat (cohen) goes around and does some random stuff that would make other people uncomfortable.
Although it is like Borat i actually watched Bruno all the way through. I couldnt even finish Borat, is that saying something?
I dont know buy what i do know is that if you want to laugh a pound off your body than this is the movie.
I have mixed feelings about Bruno it had it's disturbing parts for sure but all together it was a hallarious film. If you mind nudity or sexual humor it's not a movie for you. I enjoyed the gay humor that was used in front of real people not actors. I wouldnt prefer it over Borat, which is a simallar kind of movie made by the same people. My opinion all together is that it was an outstanding well acted extremly funny movie. Although I enjoyed it I dont think they should make another of these type of movies like Borat. I think they should take a different kind of a aproach at making a comedy like a movie with more actors and more of a plot line that would be a movie worth viewing. I do also have to say it was maybe a little to much like Borat in some ways. Bruno is about a gay fashion model from Austria who loses his fame and decides to go to Hollywood for a fresh start and his assitant leaves him much like Borat which is about a news reporter from Kazakhstan who goes to America to film a documentary and things go down hill and his assistant leaves him. So if you're not offended by sexually humor and some nudity I recomend this movie.
I wasn't really sure how to review this movie without making it seem I was taking sides. There is no middle ground here. You either love it or hate it. I found myself laughing silly and at the same time shocked at the subject matter. Makes one think how our culture has changed since 'Blazing Saddles", which seems like a church camp compared to this. You probably will walk out hating yourself for laughing so much. I know I did. I'll probably hate myself more when I see it again. Soon,I hope.
We just wasted $21 to see what we feel is probably the worst movie we have ever seen. We only stayed in the theater for about 20 minutes. It it hard to believe that there were not advisories to how disgusting the movie was. We are greatly saddened that parents were there watching that movie with their children. As adults, were were shocked and disgusted. We will make sure that all of our friends know what this movie was about and make extra sure that our children NEVER see this movie. We, as adults, are not prudes, and accept quite a bit of what is offered in the theaters today. This, however, was above anything that normal people should have to be subject to. Should you want to waste your time and money seeing this movie, you should at least be warned ahead of time as to the content. We never got past the gross sexual nature to even comment on the social, religious or ethnic aspects.
